My first meeting at an NA - Narcotics Anonymous meeting

I had the pleasure of attending an NA meeting last week and it was great! I initially went to gather information for my next book but what I got even more than that was genuine love from recovering addicts who accepts the individual without judgment or resentment.  The topic was self-acceptance and sponsorship.

The group stated the benefits of having a sponsor to call when the recovering addict is in need of guidance or when experiencing moments that may lead to relapse.  It was also stated that sponsors are available 24/7 and are volunteers that are positive role models who help the recovering addict stay clean.

One of the principles I liked most is the "Gratitude In Action"...when a recovering addict reaches out to helpa a new comer, allowing the newcomer to feel a sense of belonging and acceptance.

Some topics the support group cover are:

1.  Staying Clean On The Outside

2.  Recovery and Relapse

3.  The Loner- Staying Clean In Isolation

4.  Self-Acceptance

5.  Just For Today
